The National Association of Manufacturers reaches a national audience of business executives with its largest circulation publication — Manufacturing Economy Daily. The Daily is an electronic publication that crisply summarizes about 20 events, policy developments and opportunities for more than 14,000 manufacturing executives. On Feb. 24, thanks to Jeff Ostermayer and Cliff Johnson at NAM, the Manufacturing Economy Daily included this announcement about Export Now:
Export Now Launches Sales Platform That Will Allow Manufacturers To Sell To Chinese Consumers.
American consumer product manufacturers now have an efficient way to reach customers in China. There are over 150 million Chinese shoppers on the world’s largest e-commerce platform, Tmall, and now US companies can sell their products directly on Tmall from their office or factory in the USA. [A] new US company, Export Now, has opened a Tmall store that will sell your products. US companies can register on-line in the US, and Export Now will fill the orders from their China warehouse. “US companies can now post their products with Export Now to sell in China, as easily as they post on eBay or Amazon in the US,” said Export Now President Frank Lavin. With Export Now you work in your language, with your currency, with a web-based dashboard, and you ship to a warehouse in Long Beach, CA. Chinese shoppers use their local e-commerce platform, pay in local currency, review product information in their language, and receive shipments from Export Now’s Shanghai warehouse.
A similar news item appeared earlier this winter in the USDA China e-Newsletter | Volume 1, Issue 2. Thanks to Keith Schneller of the United States Department of Agriculture office in Shanghai, the news appeared under the headline: “Export Now” – A new way to enter China market.
